How can I help my ADD child behave in class?

Reasonable behavior for the ADHD child.

Kids who are hyperactive have a hard time keeping their behavior under reasonable control. "Reasonable control" doesn't mean sitting perfectly still. A child who is expected to sit perfectly still in a classroom, and manages to do so, is focusing all of their efforts on remaining still, with little left to focus on learning. See if you and the teacher can work out a reasonable compromise instead.
